Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend Remixed Trailer

Biography

Bob Marley was a hero figure, in the classic mythological sense. His departure from this planet came at a point when his vision of One World, One Love -- inspired by his belief in Rastafari -- was beginning to be heard and felt. The last Bob Marley and the Wailers tour in 1980 attracted the largest audiences at that time for any musical act in Europe.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

One Love, a remastered retrospective of poli-spiritual musical icon Bob Marley's major-label work completed before his 1980 death from cancer, may well replace 1984's Legend as the best-selling reggae album of all time. One Love is 20 cuts to Legend's 16, a set that plays in chronological order of release as opposed to party mix. As with the latter, One Love presents the sweet organ-driven and feedback-scarred live version of "No Woman, No Cry" as well as album versions of classics like "I Shot the Sheriff," "Get Up, Stand Up," and "Jamming." Single versions of "Buffalo Soldier" and "Exodus" sidle up to the full-band cut of "Redemption Song" and the soulful Marley/Curtis Mayfield medley, "One Love/People Get Ready." A fine sampler of the Tuff Gong years from 1972's Catch a Fire and onward, One Love is aimed at the casual Marley fan rather than the hardcore completist, though its final track is indeed a rarity: the Marley-penned, Lee "Scratch" Perry-produced "I Know a Place." A moving ballad-styled anthem of solidarity and freedom, it was recorded in 1977 and is unavailable on any other Bob Marley & the Wailers album. One Love gives clear evidence of why Marley's legacy endears and endures nearly a generation after his passing. --Paige La Grone

5.0 out of 5 stars This should be your first stop for Bob Marley July 5, 2001
By JRK
Format:Audio CD
I love Bob and I own "Legend", which arguably could be considered a Greatest Hits CD as well. Therefore, I was sort of surprised when this album came out because there is so much overlap between songs. Nevertheless I bought this album and I have to say the additional songs on this album and not on "Legend" (Turn Your Lights Down Low, So Much Trouble in the World, Iron Lion Zion) compliment this classic Bob Marley album and make this well worth the purchase even though I own "Legend".
If you do not already own "Legend", hands down this has to be a better choice if you are looking for a single CD as your Bob Marley collection. If you are a bigger fan, be sure to check out his 4-cd box set "Songs of Freedom".

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb overview but "Legend" remains the favorite May 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The basics : "One Love" drops one track from "Legend" ("Satisfy My Soul") and adds seven others. Both CDs use the live version of "No Woman, No Cry", while "One Love" substitutes the full band version of "Redemption Song" for "Legend"'s acoustic version. "One Love" presents its tracks in chronological order, while "Legend" is programmed more for listening pleasure or party play. You really can't go wrong with either choice (assuming you don't wish to dig a little deeper with the box set), but even though "One Love" gives better representation to all of Marley's Tuff Gong albums, "Legend" remains a sentimental favorite. Five stars to "One Love" though. By the way, Tuff Gong is reissuing all its Marley CDs in newly-remastered versions over the summer and fall of 2001 (even though they already sound great).

Format:Audio CD
This updated Bob Marley greatest hits collection was released 20 years and one day after the legendary Jamaican singer's funeral, 10 days after his untimely 1981 death from cancer at 36. It closed a 20-year career that still seemed brief, and a legacy inspiring world music and alternative rock styles, and US/Third World relations, to this day.
"One Love" is brighter-sounding, more generous sounding 1984's "Legend," reggae's top-selling LP and itself a model of packaging and artist respect. Marley's beloved hits are here, among the only reggae tracks most casual listeners have heard: the serene "One Love/People Get Ready," (used consistently in TV commercials), the sinewy "Jamming" and "Stir It Up" (an earlier hit for Johnny Nash), the infamous, strident "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up." These songs slide from personal to political to spiritual to sensual casually, as slyly as Peter Tosh's legendary keyboard work cushioned Marley's guitar and trademark percussion. The first sounds of New Wave (Police, U2) is difficult to comprehend without these classic tracks.
You also hear Marley's deep love for American soul in "Roots, Rock, Reggae" (sounding like James Brown in ballad mode), his clever wordplay in "Iron Lion Zion" and his compelling, hypnotic concert sound in 1975's "No Woman, No Cry." ("One Love" lacks tracks from 1978's remarkable "Babylon By Bus" live set).
Despite evocative photographs and superb Ted Jensen remastering, "One Love"'s annotation lags behind "Legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reggae Starter Kit From Bob Marley May 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: "The Wailers" (1972-1981) are Bob Marley (lead vocals, guitar, percussion), Peter McIntosh (piano, organ, guitar), Bunny Livingston (congas, bongos), Aston Barrett (bass, percussion), Carlton Barrett (drums & percussion), Karl Lindo (keyboards), Karl Smith (guitar), Donald Kinsey (guitar), Julian Marvin (guitar)... and other assorted players over the years.

THE DISC: (2001) 20 tracks in chronological order of release - clocking in at approximately 78 minutes. Contains a 19-page booklet with page by page song listing, the album the songs came from, the year released of each song, numerous pictures, band members, and thank you's (no lyrics). Digitally remastered sound. Label - Tuff Gong / Island.

COMMENTS: "One Love" is a wonderful CD. A notch better than "Legend" due to 5 extra songs and crisp remastering. You'll find 14 of the 15 songs from "Legend" here (minus ""Satisfy My Soul"). The necessary extra songs you get are "Iron Lion Zion", "So Much Trouble In The World", "Roots, Rock, Reggae", "Turn Your Lights Down Low" and the hit or miss bonus "I Know A Place" (never released). This compilation grabs from most of Marley's popular works... 2 songs from the CD "Burnin'", 1 from "Kaya", 1 from "Natty Dread", 1 from "Survival", 1 from "Confrontation", 2 from "Uprising", and a stunning 6 from his most succesful studio album "Exodus". You also get a better rendition of the "Redemption Song" featuring the whole band and not just Marley and his guitar. There are a few tunes I miss from "Kaya" and 2 tunes in particular I miss from "Natty Dread" ("Lively Up Yourself" and "So Jeh Seh"). If you own no Marley, this is THE place to start. Nice liner notes and photography as well - the sleeve cover photo is one of the best naturally posed pictures of Bob Marley I can remember.
